Prepare for a successful business career
Gain a solid background in leadership, communication, accounting, behavioral dynamics, and quantitative analysis during your business administration degree studies at Southern New Hampshire University. These business and management skills, coupled with those developed in SNHU's core bachelor's degree courses, help you prepare for a successful management career.
You can expand your business skills further with a minor in another business discipline such as accounting, international business, marketing, operations management or organizational leadership. Building on your strong foundation in management studies and practices can further enhance your employment opportunities.
Theoretical knowledge and practical experience
Learn about the latest business topics and practices from SNHU business faculty who are grounded in the real world and bring plenty of theoretical knowledge and practical experience to class. You are encouraged to be an active participant in the learning process in the classroom and in the community.
The industry is very broadly defined for business administration majors, and graduates have a wide range of career options. Businesses of all sizes and types seek employees with degrees in business administration to move into entry-level and mid-level managerial and supervisory positions.
When students combine their business administration major with a minor in another business discipline, they add to their already solid managerial base and further enhance their employment opportunities.
Students can earn a BS in Business Administration in just three years without taking evening, weekend or summer classes.
